The First Family took part in Small Business Saturday by heading out to Washington, D.C. bookstore Politics and Prose. As Pres. Obama, accompanied by daughters Malia and Sasha, checked out, he noticed a book about him. The New York Times reports:
Mr. Obama spotted a new book behind the register, “The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House,” by Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The president noted that he looked “lonely” on the cover, and Malia asked, “How is he already writing a book?” With a smile, Malia added that her father looked sad on the cover. “Looks like a sad book,” she said teasingly, in a typical family exchange not often seen from the Obamas in public.
